Details about Cardiac CT Made Easy 2nd edition
Cardiac CT Made Easy 2nd edition PDF free download – Computed tomography has established itself as a novel diagnostic technique for cardiovascular disease. The constant improvements in temporal and spatial resolution of computed tomography systems permit increasingly stable imaging of the rapidly moving heart, and as a result of these improvements the number of clinical indications for cardiac computed tomography is increasing. Indications have expanded from prevention (where coronary calcium imaging is complemented by advanced analysis of plaque morphology and composition) to modern interventional treatment of cardiac disease; for example, detailed computed tomographic imaging is one of the major contributors to the success of transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). Based on the tremendous developments that we have witnessed in recent years, it can be expected that computed tomography will continue to expand its role in the work-up and management of cardiovascular disease, and everyone involved in the diagnosis and treatment of heart disease should take advantage of these new imaging capabilities. Cardiac computed tomography requires specialist knowledge. Cardiologists need to familiarize themselves with computed tomography technology, image interpretation tools, typical findings and artifacts, while radiologists need deeper insight in cardiac anatomy, function, and pathophysiology than ever before. The second edition of Cardiac CT Made Easy is therefore published just at the right time. Along with the basic information everyone should know, and new and recent techniques, the applications of cardiac computed tomography are thoroughly explained and put in a clinical context. With a clear structure, well-written text, and a large number of impressive illustrations, this book will be a very useful resource for all those new to the field, and a trustworthy reference for those who have been involved for a while but would like to update their knowledge or are looking for a resource to turn to for very specific questions.
